Portrait photography and Hair and Beauty photography have a lot in common. Again, there are things a photographer cannot control, like stray hair, acne, skin blemishes.
To achieve a perfect result, you need a professional retoucher! Boosting the irises, skin softening, removing hot spots, correcting make up, sometime enlarging the eyes, reducing the size of ears and doing a good nose job is a part of my work. The shape of the clothing should not distract your attention, the shape of the body must be smooth. And THE HAIR. Yes. The hair cut must be perfect! Nice and shiny, that is what you need. A great attention to detail is crucial here. Trimming, cutting, adding hair, bringing up the highlights and playing with the shape. This is my second favourite type of photography.
